These are probably my favourite thing I have ever come up with, decoration-wise. And honestly so easy to do, but super-effective and suitably spooky for Halloween =)

But much better in the dark!

I came up with the idea 5 years ago when I was planning my Halloween themed 25th Birthday party, and best of all, it was re-using some supplies I had originally used in our wedding decorations earlier that year.

All you need is a glass vase, a submersible floralyte (they usually come in packs of 10), some red food colouring and some spider shaped party confetti. I had about 8 large vases from our wedding centerpieces that I used, that I had bought for $6 each at Hot Dollar, the vase shown in this example I bought for about $3 I think.


I don’t think I even need to write instructions it’s so easy… Put water in the vase with a few drops of food colouring, turn on the light and let it float to the bottom of the vase, then float a few spider confetti pieces on top of the water. Done!

It looks good in the daytime

I need to get some new batteries for my old floralytes (most of them have drained over 5 years!), but I’m definitely going to get this decoration happening again this year.

Let me know what you think, in the comments below!
